• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

    FSX Aerosoft vs Mine scenery (funny)

    As I say to my students, I can teach you all editors that I know but only technical side and technical approach.. No one can teach you to be an artist of god.

    Maya or blender to .mdl

    MTL file is OBJ's material and texture information file. You have to save your OBJ/MTL into your texture file folder. Then load OBJ in to MCX, do your bits with material settings and export as BGL.. Im not sure about ADE but ADE should read BGL files. in ADE you need to go Tools>Library Object...

    how to fix the nose?

    NURBS if it is organic shape. Wings and entire aircraft including interior sheathing can be done by NURBS easily once you understand how they work, then just little poly editing if needed at all. There is possibility that once you open nurbs section, then you quickly close it.. :D

    Edge Technique (or lack thereof)....

    This is my stuff with edges, and a render wont differ much in FSX, I would say WYSIWYG. http://prntscr.com/6g99fl http://prntscr.com/6g9dfi Yea, there is a bit more polys.. like 20K.. LOL the same as 1 jetway..

    1. 2. If you do not understand text, then how are you going to understand voice ? 3. Image that you usually see is RGB, that is mix of the milions of tones of Red, Green, Blue. Alpha channel is invisible or is behind RGB. This kind of image is RGBA. Alpha channel is responsible to make RGB more...

    We have thousands of images, I dont know wich one is good for you.. Another thing is why you cannot make an image ? what is the matter ? may be we can help !

    Edge Technique (or lack thereof)....

    Ok that is fine, exactly what I was thinking about.. Flat poly line remains visible in case if my runway has lighter sides and edges. I already made sharp (bump ish) edges all around, havent tested it yet tho. In other hand as Tic said is The truth is near X-Files.

    How should I make this corner?

    That is the trouble Shaun, noise overlay will make it soften, I would say blend over to the grass in some way.. I just cannot imagine how.. If you could give us a visual example of your idea to get so many polys down ? Look, Both sides have asphalt noise (dirt, oil, wear, something else... )...

    How should I make this corner?

    I'm calmer than anyone else here, Tic. I have plenty of time to enjoy modelling. "Relax" would be relative to the heavy rush past somebody.. But Im not. As I noticed that the modelling is one thing what ever way you do it, another thing is texturing that consumes triple time of the modelling or...

    How should I make this corner?

    As I mentioned before that Im not about the speed at all, I wouldn't care the speedy modelling at all, at all ! To me it would take 2-3 hours or 10 hours if necessary. Furthermore it is not all about speedy modelling competition here. I care quality, not the end result quality but both...

    Hard ? Simple object without effects and animation you can convert with ease. Blender > OBJ > ModelConverterX > MDL/BGL. (With no B2FSX tools scenario.) Object with animation and effects, you do Blender > .X > x2mdl (MCX) (with B2FSX scenario) LOL, completely the same stuff.. And I find to...

    The I am working on thread

    There are so many models and manufacturers there so it is very difficult to find the right blueprint. Make a base model first and then the detail of one you have to model. I assume you have plenty of pictures/videos of your airport.. From other hand, jetways are not so recognizable as a shape...
